12 oz Co2 vs 13/22 ci HPA size comparison

So what's the length comparison for a 12 oz co2 compared to a 13 ci inch hpa or 22 ci hpa tank? I'm building a backbottle mag and considering getting a 13 ci inch tank for it (limited capacity semi ) Also I plan to put my 45 rd brass eagle hopper on it. Anyways, I know the shots with a 13 ci tank is going to be around 100-150 if I'm lucky. But I want something that I know will shoulder well.

My 13ci (PSI) is 2/3-3/4 inch shorter than a 12 oz with standard pin valve.
Adding a buttplate pretty much makes up the difference.

3.5oz CO2 with a butt-plate will let you play tight and net 250 or so shots on a semi.

9oz will give you 700+ shots and won't be too long to use as a stock.

None of those tanks will require hydrostatic testing as they're under 2-inches in diameter.
Larger tanks WILL require re-hydro.

I never wanted to pay twice for a tank so I stuck with under-2-inchers.
9oz does. Mine are a tiny bit bigger than 2 inches.
7oz are 2 inches, if you can find one maybe go with that?
